in ten years, if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget, it means that you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the shake of balance. >> a lot of the republican congressmen met with the president last week was oklahoma's james langford who joins us now. congressman, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> mike: when you met with the president this week you were one of the congressmen and you pressed him about a balanced budget, he didn't seem at that interested, did he? >> he did not. i asked him if we could find common ground, one of the key areas would be a balanced budget. we may disaagree on the method, but at least on the principle, our budget should balance. it was the crown jewel of the clinton administration that they could work with a republican house to finally come to a balanced budget and i don't understand how we couldn't do that now. he again reiterated did not feel that a balanced budget goal, and i couldn't imagine saying to the nation we're going i
are competing with paul ryan or rand paul or marco rubio on the main stage. it happens and we are doing a great job with it host: on twitter they said, unless about-face on an birth control, abortion, immigration and a marriage, they are done. do you agree? have athe republicans majority in the state levees -- legislative chambers in the country. the republicans did not run a good presidential race. what i do find true in the statement he made is that it is not about issues. it is about performance. ofublicans have lost five the last six presidential elections because we have not adjusted to be changing demographics of our country. it is not a matter of changing who we are or what we stand for. it is a matter of reaching out to all americans, what ronald reagan used to do. the asiannot going to american community, the african- american community -- i am proud to be the first hispanic american charity american conservative union has ever had. is first rule of engagement to engage. i do not think we have done that well. the reason why we are losing ground with the growing demographics of america
chairman paul ryan. most of that distinction was highlighted in the clip you just played. while both sides sort of maintain lower deficit numbers, they go about it in a different way. the democrats tried to vote raise new revenue. they struck the finance committee to come up with almost $1 trillion in tax reform package versus all the cuts on the spending side of the ledger on the house republican plan. so that is the debate we have been having for years and it is the debate we will keep having as these two budgets look to move to the course of their respective chambers next week. host: niels, what is new about what democrats are proposing? have we seen a lot of this comes from democrats before? guest: we're not talking about anything that is particularly novel. because we have not seen the senate to go through the formal process of drafting a budget resolution, holding a budget markup, and go to the floor with a budget resolution and pass a budget resolution in several years now, it is sort of putting pen to paper in a different way than we have seen the senate democrats do it lately. a l
differences. they certainly go in different directions. paul ryan's budget balances and 10 years and does not raise taxes and patty murray never balances and raises taxes $1.50 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 million tax increase obama 1 in january and a trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of -- they did not know, they never got press attention. obama never talked about a trillion dollars of tax increases starting this year under obamacare. trillion tax$3 increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passed. of course, in never balances because they turn around and spend another -- more money, hundreds of millions more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. so, they do more spending with more taxes. does, andyan budget what i think it is interesting for the republican future -- it reforms entitlements and tax anybody over 55 from any changes but make changes so young people can still have the programs. it takes all of the 185 different welfare programs and block gra
presidential election, mitt romney and paul ryan both told us that there were trillions of dollars of tax breaks for very wealthy people, they proposed to eliminate them as part of tax reform where they reduced the rate. we say, let's take some of that revenue to help reduce the deficit, combined with other targeted cuts. >> be more specific for me. when you talk about tax loopholes and the very wealthy. which specific loopholes and what is very wealthy? >> sure, sure, these are, when you're in the highest tax bracket, you're in the 39% tax bracket when you get a deduction, whatever it may be for, you get 39 cents worth of deduction. whereas somebody who is in the 28% tax bracket only gets 28 cents deduction for that particular deduction. so what we're saying and this is similar to a proposal the president's put forward, is that for folks who are in that very high bracket, the 39% bracket, the value of your deductions will be limited to about 28% which is what the value of deductions is for a middle income taxpayer. >> so ultimately, the budget that you have there and i just read the litt
, paul ryan is talking about 6.1 trillion of deficit reduction the next ten years and almost all of from the spending side. party murray on the budget side of the democrats is talking $2.3 trillion of deficit reduction and half come from taxes and the balance come from spending, 975 billion from spending. a vast difference in size and significant difference in priorities. if you try to break down those priorities and look at some different categories of spending, you can see that in the discretionary side, this is the stuff that the sequester effects. ryan wants to cut 1.2 trillion which is 3 billion more than the sqester. party murray wants to cut 600 billion less than the sequester so the democrats the to store 600 billion of the sequester money. the democrats want 100 billion for jobs -- >> can i interrupt you there? par patty murray knows they will restore a dime -- >> i am trying to highlight major differences between the two sides. >> explaining to people at home, that's a good negotiating start if i were patty murray and a democrat, that's exactly where i would start knowing we ar
in strong support today of the balanced budget put forward by my friend and chairman paul ryan. and the reasonable and practical approach that this budget committee has taken while they budget hardworking taxpayer dollars. mr. speaker, this budget debate goes deeper than spread sheets and focuses on the longevity of the american dream. today we are considering a republican budget that actually balances in 10 years. calls for pro growth, pro job tax reform -- pro-growth, pro-job tax reform and strengthens medicare for our seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work
